* chicken tools of the week

Posted on December 1st, 2010 by maitreya. Filed under Chickens, Home and Garden.

My favorite non-obvious tools for help with the chickens:

child size rake, just right for turning and spreading bedding, especially in and around smaller nooks of the coop


generic “garden weasel” type cultivator, perfect for breaking up the straw bale


one more: frisbee giveaway from a conference, used upside down to feed them kitchen scraps.  It keeps them from scattering the scraps too badly all over the place, so it’s easy to dump once they’ve decided they’re finished.

    AHHH! A Frisbee. Thank you so so much! You are a genius. I have a thousand of those (slight exaggeration) sitting around. And I never know what to feed them kitchen scraps in. I don’t want to use a plate or any of our Tupperware! A FRISBEE! Awesome. Thank you.
